Addison Grace Blankenship...

has finally made her appearance. She was born on Wednesday February 17th at 10:20 a.m., she weighed in at 7lbs. 11oz and was 21 in. long. Monday night/Tuesday mornings induction did not work so we started round two Tuesday night. I progressed from 2 cm. to almost 8 in just a few hours and a lot quicker than anyone fact I didn't receive my epidural until I was 8 cm dilated. Child birth was the most painful thing I have ever endured but just like everyone has said, you forget once your child is placed in your arms. My little girl is completely wrapped around my finger and I can't believe I have lived all of these years without her in my life. She is an awesome baby who very rarely cries. We were just sprung from the hospital today due to her developing jaundice which wasn't fun but the Doctor thinks she should be just fine by Monday or so. Now if you'll excuse me I am going to go and rest. I haven't had more than two hours of sleep since Sunday night and my days are starting to run together. I will post pictures and such at a later time.

  2. Congratulations, Katie! I am glad everything went well. Get as much rest as possible, and then GIVE US PICTURES AND DETAILS! :P
